It’s all change at Slough Town following the resignations of managers Neil Baker and Jon Underwood after nearly a decade in charge of the Vanarama National League South side.

The duo, centre-back partners in their playing days at a number of clubs including Bracknell Town and Farnborough, had rejuvenated Slough in nearly 10 years, taking them from Step 4 back to an established Step 2 side.

A statement on the Slough Town website said: “This evening, during a meeting with the club’s board of directors, Jon Underwood and Neil Baker informed the board of their intention to resign as joint first team managers of Slough Town Football Club with immediate effect.

“Naturally we are extremely disappointed at the news, which brings to an end Jon and Neil’s nine-and-a-half year tenure as joint managers since arriving in May 2013.

“Manny Williams, Lee Togwell and Scott Davies will take charge of tomorrow evening’s Berks & Bucks FA Senior Cup tie at Maidenhead United.”

  1. A sad day for my club. Bakes and Unders have been brilliant. So many memories over the last 9+ years. Slough we’re at their lowest when they took over, then 2 promotions, 2 fantastic cup runs and other brilliant results have put us where we are now. Both are friendly, approachable and honest. As a fan, I can only hope their successor is going to be the same. They won’t be out of work long and whichever club picks them up should thank their lucky stars. Good luck Bakes and Unders. #alwaysrebels
